PARALLAX EFFECT

Every aspect of a bowling ball must serve a purpose. So, while Parallax Effect aesthetics are distinctive, they’re not simply a matter of appeal. Every shape and contour of the core; the unique chemistry of the cover; the color down to the finish is optimized to support its dynamic performance.

Don't go with the flow. Be the flow.

The Aeroflo Core builds on the classical Storm credence of elegance and simplicity. The ellipsed hole filled with lighter core material constructs a higher RG than what is typically found in most asymmetric balls. The flip block coupled at the bottom ensures high total differential, but without the crucial cuts on the Y-axis, the intermediate differential would be just 0.007! The strategically positioned depressions on the Z-axis 6 3/4” from the pin mimic the effect of an extra hole in a similar space and keeps the intermediate differential at a more workable amount. Having a precise ratio of intermediate to total differential makes drilling less sensitive for drillers and provides a truer roll for bowlers.



The secret to getting ahead is getting started.

We stepped back and took the best features of our seven most popular coverstocks: Reactor™, R2S™, TX-16™, NRG™, SPEC™, GI-20™, and NeX™. What’s realized has more texture, more porosity, and more motility that combines the benefits of seven of the most iconic coverstocks to ever leave the Storm workshop. TractionX7 headlines the durability of TX-16, the backend of R2S, and the slower oil absorption rates of SPEC. Simply put, there’s versatility encased in TractionX7’s genome that stays put for as long as it stays in your bag.

Review:
The Storm Parallax Effect is on the high end hook scale for a pearl ball. The Parallax Effect is very different from the original Parallax. The Effect is much cleaner through the front of the lane with much more back end. Sometimes my original would roll a bit too early but the Effect solves this issue while providing me with more angle and hit. I have seen more hook with the latest shiny balls from the Storm brands and surface adjustments are easier and provide a wider range of adjustments than before. The new Utah cover stocks have been exceptional. I have used the Parallax Effect on a wide variety of conditions and found I can use it with success. This Ball in my opinion does not need strong layouts to react strong. I have had better luck drilling my balls as well as my customer’s balls weaker and let the cover and core do the work. My Parallax Effect is the strongest shiny ball I have in my bag currently. When I need a hard hitting big hooking polished ball but with more angle than the trend or Axiom Pearl this is now my go to ball.

Summary:
The Parallax Effect gives a cleaner and more angular move than the original.
The Parallax Effwct rolls well on a variety of patterns.
This ball has a lot of hook for a shiny ball.

Better than I even imagined!
This is my second asymmetrical ball but my first storm ball. This thing is a beast on the backend. I am normally a stroker but definitely more of a tweener when using this ball. Take 5 boards to the left.

Greatest ball ever made!!!
I’ve had it for the day now and I bowled 8 games back to back because of how great the ball was reacting and how consistent the breaking point was!
Ps: My average tonight went up 30 lol

Parallax Effect by Roto Grip Rick
Storm Parallax Effect:
Cover: TractionX7 Pearl Reactive
Core: Aerflo core
Finish: 1500 grit Polished
Layout: 60 x 6 x 60

What Did I See: Know that I experienced a TON of over/under with the first Parallax, I consulted with Bret Stabley @ Bowlers' Supply and we decided on a 6 inch P2P with a weaker angle for the backend to combat that. Upon suing on lanes that were bowled on most of the ball, the Parallax Effect was super good, and roll very similar to my Axiom Pearl with a 5 inch P2P. What the main difference I saw was the overall length off the end of the pattern, where the Parallax would either hook quickly, or skate all the way to the pins and the motion was a tad later then the Axiom Pearl. Smoother through the pin deck and more noticeable carry also.
On newer HPL with a good amount of head oil and less of a cliff at the back end of the pattern and also using the Fire and Ice conditioners, I changed the surface to 5000 ab and the Effect blended the pattern more then the original Parallax where I could get no reaction because the Parallax would just hydroplane on the front of the pattern and never got a chance to change directions or "dig in" the conditioner and be more reliable. The Parallax Effect was able to slow down enough in the front part of the lane to have change of the direction off of the pattern. The more the lineage on the lanes, the better the Parallax Effect performed. I would not use it as a primary ball, but would use in situations where its on later into a block of games or where the left side of the pattern is asymmetric like some sport patterns are becoming.

Props to Vise Inserts for great products and Bret@ Bowlers' Supply, Inc for all the assistance over the past several years with my game, and of course, everyone at SPI for allowing me to be the man known as Roto Grip Rick...

Parallax Effect!
The Parallax Effect features the Aeroflo core found in the original Parallax but is now wrapped in traction X7 pearl. This direct quote from Storm explains the design intent behind Aeroflo. “The flip block coupled at the bottom ensures high total differential, but without the crucial cuts on the Y-axis, the intermediate differential would be just 0.007! The strategically positioned depressions on the Z-axis 6 3/4” from the pin mimic the effect of an extra hole in a similar space and keeps the intermediate differential at a more workable amount. Having a precise ratio of intermediate to total differential makes drilling less sensitive for drillers and provides a truer roll for bowlers.” What this boils down to is a core that mimics a ball with a weight hole while still legal within today’s rules! I find the Parallax Effect to be a fantastic option after my Honey Badger Intensity or Incite start to bail downlane due to the friction being created but the pattern isn’t defined enough for my UC2. When compared to the original Parallax, the Effect feels nothing like it. It’s much cleaner, sharper and faster downlane. Both Parallax’s would make a fantastic 1-2 league punch! Be sure to stop into your local Storm VIP Pro Shop and pre-order your very own Parallax Effect today!

Hits Like a Grenade Being Thrown

The Paralyzer
I bought this ball because I needed a heavy oil ball but would still act good for a Straight down an in bowler with med rev rate but would bite when it felt friction, an boy does it. This ball hits like someone throwing dynamite at the pins. Im very impressed with this ball, very forgiving ball lots of carry. This new coverstock is the real deal. I knick named my ball the Parralyzer because of how hard it Hits!!
